Resource identifiers

Digital Object Identifiers

Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) are persistent identifiers which can be used to consistently and accurately reference digital objects and/or content. The DOIs provide a way for the ADS resources to be cited in a similar fashion to traditional scholarly materials. More information on DOIs at the ADS can be found on our help page.

Citing this DOI

DOIs should be the last element in a citation irrespective of the format used. The DOI citation should begin with "doi:" in lowercase followed by the DOI with no spaces between the ":" and the DOI.


DOIs can also be cited as a persistent link from another Web page. This is done by appending the DOI Resolver with the DOI. This would look like:

However, if it is possible it is best to hide the URL in the href property of the <a> tag and have the link text be of the form doi:10.5284/1000327. The HTML for this would look like:

<a href="">doi:10.5284/1000327</a>

Type 28A twin embrasure anti-tank pillbox, built to the W of the anti-tank ditch.
(Source: Article 1994/12)
Massive square anti-tank gun emplacement with two large embrasures for 2pdr. anti-tank gun, facing E and N respectively. The embrasures are blocked in with brick, but the entrance (on the S side) is open. The corners of the emplacement are 'cut off' and the roof edge chamfered. The W and S faces show evidence of having been fired at with a high velocity weapon. Inside, there is a dividing wall creating a side chamber with two embrasures for LMG fire. In addition, there are two LMG embrasures in the main body of the emplacement. Used as cattle shelter. Public access, and interior - next to footpath.
